Costa Teguise is one of those resorts where you can visit time and time again and never feel disappointed. I developed a real love for this place over the years I have been visiting Lanzarote since 2006.
Some may find this resort a little quiet and less lively compared to other resorts in Lanzarote. But I will always have a soft spot for Costa Teguise. Because it’s the small things which makes a place magical and here are just a few of them….
1. The Beautiful & Diverse Range of Costa Teguise Beaches
You’ll never get two beaches that are the same in Costa Teguise – And that’s the beauty of it. They all differ so vastly that it’s hard to imagine that these photos are taken within a mile of each other.
But I’m going to break down what the two main beaches are for. Because each individual beach has it’s unique characteristics and wonderful quirks!
Playa Bastian: Playa Bastian is perfect for your Insta-worthy photos or beach photography. The sand is rougher and the sea is more hostile, so you cannot swim here. But that doesn’t stop it from being a lovely beach to visit and relax at.
Plus, there’s a stunning restaurant/cafe called Villa Todello, where you can immerse yourself into your surroundings and soak up those stunning views. But if you ARE a swimming person don’t fret because there’s a beach right next to Playa Bastian which is perfect…
Playa del Jablillo:
Playa del Jablillo is protected from the rough currents as it’s protected within a cove. This makes this beach perfect for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.
The true winning qualities is the literal crystal clear, turquoise sea and the sea life that dwells within it. And the good news? You don’t even have to be a good swimmer to see fishes and sea life, which leads to…
2. Costa Teguise Being The Only Place Where You Can Feed Fish at Your Feet
If you love animals you’ll keep coming back to this beach like I do! You won’t quite get an experience like this anywhere else in the world and at little to no cost. Because many tourists attractions will charge you a bomb to snorkel with an abundance of fish. Plus, the chances are that you won’t get up close and personal like this.
This is also great for people who aren’t strong swimmers as the currents are so mild due to the beach being protected. Also, you won’t have to swim very far to see these fish since they practically swim right up to your feet.
Top tip: Bring bread and bananas with you. This will attract loads of fish as they feed of these two foods.
3. The Unique & Delicious Snacks That you Cannot Get in the UK
Let’s face it, any holiday to Spain is not complete without laying on your hotel bed in a white fluffy robe while watching foreign TV channels with a packet of Lays crisps.
Now forget your boring usual snacks that you get in Tesco or Sainsbury’s, you’ll be spoiled for choice in the Spar and Hiperdino stores in Costa Teguise.
Sweets, crisps, biscuits and snacks will be NOTHING like in the UK and seem to have more additives and sugar. But everything tastes better in Spain and if you visit convenience stores there, you’ll know why. These stores simply put ours in the UK to shame!
Top Tip: I always get vegetable/garlic lays, Nestea, Kinder Bueno ice cream, sour cream Tuc Crackers, Celgan Pina Colada Drink and every Milka chocolate bar – It’s just routine!
4. Friendly Little Visitors Everywhere
If you’re the type of person to get excited when you see a dog in public then you’ll adore this place. Because whether it’s a hotel cat, the sea bream from Playa del Jablillo or a little dove – You’ll get little visitors everywhere.
This may be a silly pointer for some people, but it’s one of the small reasons why I love Costa Teguise.
5. Cheap Cocktails & Drinks Everywhere!
If you’re a cocktail enthusiast like me, you’ll love Costa Teguise. Because you can get cheap alcoholic drinks, cocktails and cocktails from as little as 2-10 euros. Plus, cocktails taste much, much better by the sea!
Top top: I’d recommend visiting Bar Vali & Bacchus Bar as these are the best and cheapest bars in my opinion!
I will add more details and specifics on these places soon as my maps aren’t working on WordPress due to technical issues. Also, it’s very nice to be back and I will be focusing on more travel and lifestyle content!
